The new brochure for the fall and winter semesters covers 168 pages and is richly illustrated. It will be distributed to all households in Schwandorf, Wackersdorf and Steinberg am See. 300 courses, lectures and individual events are divided into departments of society, professions, languages, health and culture. In the "Health" section alone, there are 144 events, ranging from sports activities of all kinds, to wellness, hairdressing and make-up workshops.

The Adult Education Institution offers 45 courses in ten different foreign languages, including Russian, Arabic and Ukrainian. "And in all levels of difficulty," assures manager Barbara Genzken-Schindler. From beginner to advanced, each participant will find an entry. Those who wish to continue their professional education can book preparatory courses, computer courses and live seminars on the Internet. At the "digital counseling" at the Mehrgenerationenhaus in Wackersdorf, young people help older people handle their smartphones and tablets.

For the 34th time, the Volkshochschule is organizing a trip to the Frankfurt Book Fair from 16 to 20 October. "Schwandorf in the Mirror of Eugene Okers's Novel" is the title of a literary evening on September 23 at 7.30pm at the Oberpfälzer Künstlerhaus. Alfred Wolfsteiner, the former director of the city library, reads from a novel by a writer from Schwandorf who has not only befriended the description of a microcosm in a small town. The cultural offering also includes a "Vacanza in Italy" concert on October 5th at 7.30pm in Spitalkirche. You can hear opera arias by famous Italian composers. From the abundance of new publications, the director of the Regensburger Literaturhaus, Karin Wildfeuer, will be presenting herself at the City Library on November 27 at 7 pm under the motto of the recommended book "Read for You". By September 30, Volkshochschule is once again offering a flea market with textbooks that are no longer used in courses.

Applications can be made by phone (09431/45510), fax 4 55 40), mail (vhs[at]Schwandorf[dot]de) or in person (Kirchengasse 1).
